This was a wonderful tour through the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. We stopped at three wineries, but they were well-spaced. There was bread and olive oil at all of the wineries and a delicious lunch at the second one. We also had a short stop (about 30 minutes) in the town of Greve where we had free time to stroll and shop. The tour guide Rafaeli was wonderful and the bus driver was highly talented. I highly recommend this tour.
